"A provocative, enlightening, and creative study of the intricacies and fragilities of constitutionalism in the modern day."--Choice
From the Inside Flap
"Under the leadership of Walter F. Murphy, the Princeton School has redefined the central concerns of public law. Eschewing a reductive focus on 'judicial behavior,' while refusing merely to echo the legal academy, it has concerned itself with a more fundamental, far-reaching, and interesting set of questions--the meaning and worth constitutionalism, its preconditions, and the way of life it fosters. The Princeton School has thus reconnected public law with political theory and returned political science to a mode of discourse shared by citizens."--Stanley C. Brubaker, Colgate University.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
